4:02 pm
haven't seen a rerun like that, will they redo hogan's heroes? elon musk might have a plan to go to mars. jeff bezos, fortunes out of this world already. amazon up to another record close, four of the last five sessions they have had a record close. today well above yesterday's $8116 a share. there is the big deal -- $816. remember the champagne of beers? now the rolls-royce of beers. ambev and sabmiller. anheuser-busch will prevail. sabmiller no longer hearing that. south african brewery they use that on the african continent. this will give the new company access to africa. it will go forward as anheuser-busch inbev. this bud's for you. they will spin off other brews other people like in tap. they had a record intraday today on that stock. bottoms-up.
4:03 pm
me i take a line in google. david: $100 billion. a lot of money in beer. meanwhile the huge jump in oil based on opec agreeing to cut oil production but, scott, aren't those agreements usually broken? >> yeah they are. you know what? i think they're taking a page from the fed's book. like a committee of cain any balls. we'll see if they come through. -- cannibals. there is a little, i think the market got wrong footed. they weren't expecting anything. we have seen short builds recently. that squeezed the market out. it was good for a 5% bump. with the economy not doing so well folks are ready to sell this thing as it approaches 50. david: don't bet on it. melissa. melissa: california state treasurer john chung announcing they are suspending all business
4:04 pm
with wells fargo. saying the opening of the two million accounts is legal and ethical offense that can not go unpunished. joining me gary kaltbaum of kaltbaum capital management. he is the president. danielle dimartino booth. thanks for joining me. how big after blow is it? let's talk about california treasurer's move, how big of a blow is it for the state not to do business with them any longer? >> they have a optics issue. there is pile-on effect and things just keep getting worse for the company. the state of california is the world's largest, excuse me, the country's largest economy if you're parsing it out on a state by state basis. i think this is meaningful. they have a growing daily pr problem along with a bunch of politicians would really love to see somebody getung out to dry after what little the administration's done over the past eight years. melissa: gary, you know, so the
4:05 pm
ceo, john stumpf will be forfeiting $41 million. i wanted to look and see what his total net worth was. for some of those guys like jamie dimon that wouldn't be that big of a deal. he has net worth of $200 million. i suspect this will come from his retirement package, that he would get almost no matter what. it is money down the road. does this save him though, is my question? >> it depends on capitol hill and media at this point, if they continue to put the screws to him. i think he is going to be gone. you can expect somebody, in next little interview to say, oh, you're giving us back $41 million but you're taking 100 million. not good enough. so i think there will be more to come over the next couple weeks. melissa: i think we can can guess that somebody would be elizabeth warren. david: good point. federal reserve chairwoman janet yellen testifying in front of congress today as two of her colleagues came out in opposite directions in terms of rate hikes. gary, this is the gang that
4:06 pm
can't shoot straight. >> i got to be careful about what i say. david: why? , you never are. >> these people do not have a clue. they are creating bubbles all over the place. they think they are heroes and at the end of the day, i am so worried about what is going to come. just remember, these are the same people that caused the housing bubble, did not see it coming until it was already killing everybody. and now they're just mass confusion on a daily basis. i've been begging them to shut up for a couple of years. there will be one day they say too much and everything is going to come tumbling down. david: we're fortunate somebody who was a fly on the wall in those meetings. danielle, you used to work for the federal reserve. you know what goes on there. shouldn't the chairman of the federal reserve, in this case the chairwoman keep better control of the colleagues? >> oh i think it is readily apparent given the different directions and conflicting messages coming from the people a the fed she completely -- david: is that her own fault, is what i'm saying?
4:07 pm
>> it is one of the jobs of the person who is running the fed is to maintain one line of communications and to try and corral everybody around that message. otherwise it introduces distortions and confusion, which is exactly what is happening today. melissa: it is end of an era for blackberry. shares surging after the company announced it would stop making its own phones and turn attention to soft is wear instead. gary, we were talking about this today. he have one of us here knows someone who is surgeally attached to their blackberry. there you go. even though it is no longer 199, they refuse to get rid of it and can not come into the new era. what does this mean to you? >> well it is good to know a company after watching their stock go from 148 to 8 and have no innovation or creativity the last few years finally give in and throw in the towel but good, gosh, they will be in software like there is no competition there. look, i don't know what is going
4:08 pm
to happen going forward but it is about time. it's a shame because they had a food thing going. tells us how tough the industry is, if you don't stay on top of it, if you're not creative, somebody else is more creative than you're done. melissa: you lose it. danielle, did you hold up your blackberry? do you have one there? >> it is my imaginary one they took away from me since i left the fed. i still feel like i had a minor digit am amputated. agencies like the fed not moving off blackberry platform, they have one valuable asset to provide security for the government, why somebody hasn't come in, apple, samsung, purchased this technology, this intellectual property is completely beyond me. melissa: it is amazing. it is not just the keyboard. the fact that they do provide better security than any of the other devices. >> all of encrypted documents
4:09 pm
that we would send around internally inside the fed, only blackberry platform that could insure the safety of those documents. melissa: and still they were not able to turn that into a winning business. i mean it is just amazing to me. business school case study right there for anyone to follow. guys, thanks to both of you. appreciate it. david: why hillary only wanted one device, right? melissa: right. who cares about security? >> that is another story. we're talking about hillary clinton. she is struggling about her support from younger voters not going the way she hoped. she is enlisting help of older former rival, bernie sanders, who has a lot of sway with younger voters because of free college. melissa: give aways. all the give aways in the world won't help when it comes to the clinton email scandal. new details show 1000 deleted emails between hillary clinton and general david petraeus. among what clinton maintained
4:10 pm
were yoga and wedding plans. david: he helped her with both of those. melissa: he is yoga guru for sure. david: donald trump holding a rally in iowa this very hour. he is expected to push his economic plan and slam hillary clinton's ties to wall street. we'll take it live. >> we have job growth like we'll never see. i am good for jobs. i will be the greatest president for jobs that god ever created. that i can tell you. who lives here and flies to hong kong, to visit this company that makes smart phones, used by this vice president, this little kid, oops, and this obstetrician, who works across the street from this man, who creates software. they all have insurance crafted personally for them. not just coverage, craftsmanship. not just insured. chubb insured. the mistay connected.elps us the microsoft cloud offers infinite scalability. the microsoft cloud helps our

4:12 pm
4:13 pm
melissa: breaking news for you right now. president obama will be leading the u.s. delegation to jerusalem for the funeral of shimon peres. the former israeli president. president obama will be parting tomorrow. former president bill clinton and secretary kerry are also expected to be there as well. david? david: well we have some other breaking news.
4:14 pm
we are waiting donald trump to take the stage in council bluffs, iowa, where the republican nominee is expected to slam hillary clinton on her economic plan. let's bring in our political panel to talk about this. morgan ortega, maverick pac national co-chair. kristin sole 'tis, "washington examiner" columnist and emily shire, bustle political editor. good to see you all, ladies. hillary keeps putting the smiley face on the economy but a lot of people don't feel that way. donald trump is the about that most voters don't feel that way. is he right? >> i think this is a very simple choice. if you look, you have to ask yourself is the economy working for me? what we've seen a lot of voters who did not vote in the two past presidential election cycles came out and said we haven't fully recovered from 2008. our pension may not be there. we may be working several part-time jobs instead of just one job. it's a pretty simple metric.
4:15 pm
if you think higher regulations and higher taxes and more government spending is going to improve this economy, then it's a clear choice, you have hillary clinton who will give a very sort of traditional democrat policies for the economy. david: emily, even more than that, you look at what the american public thinks. we had a poll here not long ago, do you think america's going to hell in a hand basket? 57% of the public said yes. and then nbc and "the wall street journal" came out with right track, wrong track poll, 62% think we're on the wrong track. if you believe the status quo is bad, is rotten, would you really choose hillary who essentially a charter member of the status quo? >> i think unfortunately for the republicans donald trump has not made a compelling case and hasn't convinced anyone his path will fix any concerns or anxiety. i think it is incredibly notable when "wall street journal" surveyed all the surviving members of the white house council economic advisors, not a single one appointed by a republican president said
4:16 pm
they're voting for trump. david: yeah, but kristin, do voters really count count the what the former members of the coins of economic advisors think or how they feel about things? clearly they think the status quo is rotten for them? >> well donald trump tends to poll best on the iss of the economy when compared with hillary clinton. foreign policy, other issues not as well, but the economy is the one where he holds things the closest. part of that i think unlike the normal left-right debate we have over economy, higher taxes, lower taxes, more spending, less spending, this debate is shifted where donald trump attacked hillary clinton in populist sort of way. this is different than how most republicans fight economic battle against democrats. normally republicans are in the pockets of corporations. here donald trump is trying to flip that around, saying no, no, actually hillary clinton and democrats who are. which complicates this debate and why donald trump is able to poll much much bet on economy than other issues.
4:17 pm
david: it not only complicates, his group of advisors, many like steve moore and larry kudlow and steve forbes are classical free market economists and donald trump isn't that kind of an economic planner. >> no, but i think kristin hit the nail on the head. this is really, he has found a message that resonates with voters. i think even hillary clinton's team would say this is change election and people want something different. he was able, same way that bernie sanders was able, has been able to tap into that resentment of people sort of feeling like the government and corporations, you know are against them. as conservative, i don't want to see our nominee hit companies over the head but instead for leaving america but instead we should look how we incentivize, whether corporate tax rate, incentivize them to stay instead of punishing them from leaving. david: lowering the corporate tax rate from close to 40% down to 15. it would be a huge cut. melissa? melissa: first for congress, the house and senate voting to overturn president obama's veto
4:18 pm
of the 9/11 lawsuit bill. what this means for the president moving forward. that is coming up. plus comey feeling the heat on capitol hill. house republicans demanding answers. what the fbi director had to say. that is next. >> doesn't it concern you as an investigator that your people in justice department decided to become a immunity-producing machine? >> there seems to be different folks for "different strokes" on this. i don't think your answers are satisfactory at all, mr. comey.
4:19 pm
4:20 pm
we ship everything you atcan imagine.n, and everything we ship has something in common. whether it's expedited overnight...
4:21 pm
...or shipped around the globe, ...it's handled by od employees who know that delivering freight... ...means delivering promises. od. helping the world keep promises. david: did you see this? fbi director james comey testifying at a house judiciary oversight hearing. that was this morning. he answered tough questions about the bureau's investigation into hillary clinton's email scandal. fox news's catherine herridge standing by in d.c. with the latest. hi, catherine. reporter: thank you, david.
4:22 pm
this is at least the third time fbi director comey has been on the hill. the more he talks about the investigation's integrity the less republicans and other critics seem convinced. >> you have five immunity agreements and no prosecution. when you are allowing witnesses who happen to be lawyers, who happen to be targets, to sit in on an interview, that is not the fbi that i used to work with. >> i hope some day when this political craziness is over you will look back again on this, because this is the fbi you know and love. this was done by pros in the right way. reporter: across the board democrats said today it was all about politics. >> i think the mud that is being thrown from the other side of this table here continually only because of ongoing presidential election. in the case in which the fbi decided there was nothing to prosecute, it's over. we all know nobody would be even talking about it if one weren't, if hillary clinton weren't a presidential candidate. this is pure political
4:23 pm
maneuvering. reporter: we learned today, cheryl mills, clinton's former chief of staff at the state department, and personal lawyer got a much broader deal than initially reported. she swapped fbi access to her laptop computer for guarranty she would be shielded from prosecution on obstruction of justice charges and obstruction, rather destruction of government records. one republican alleged today, and it was not disputed by the fbi director, that the colorado-based i.t. specialist, paul combetta, who took the fifth on capitol hill because he used bleachbit technology to destroy the clinton archive, also lied to federal agents and still kept his deal, david. david: interesting. catherine herridge thank you very much. exactly about that we'll talk to representative bob goodlatte. he is chairman of the judiciary committee. that is coming right up in this hour. melissa? melissa: much more than yoga routines. the fbi's latest email data dump shows almost 1000 deleted emails between hillary clinton and general david petraeus.
4:24 pm
this was during his time as head of central command. here is ric grenell, former advisor to four u.s. ambassadors to the u.n. how serious is this in your opinion? >> this is shocking. it is unbelievable. it was dumped on a friday. most people were interested, most reporters were interested in the upcoming debate. so it really went over most people's heads. i'm so glad, melissa, that you are doing this story. think about this the secretary of state deletes 1000 emails with the centcom, with the head of centcom. and centcom, nor the state department, nor anyone else has any of these records? what is going on in washington? melissa: yeah. >> this is an outrage. this is unbelievable that they would be allowed to cover up. there is no reason to delete these emails other than you're covering up something. what are they covering up? why aren't our regulators getting to the bottom of this? melissa: you heard the fbi director saying that if this
4:25 pm
weren't a political season we wouldn't be hearing about this at all. critics say that nothing criminal went on. i guess the at very least it might be relevant we had someone who ignored and carelessly trashed the rules that they were given at the sate department and now wants really tremendous promotion. isn't that enough to make a big deal out of this? >> yeah. look, i think the democrats argument there were was no criminal activity. that is a aside from the fact this is just a good government principle. who deletes emails between two senior people? i mean transparency issues. there is government foia requests that have never gone through. this is simple good government tactic. let me tell you one thing, melissa, if this happened in another country, in a foreign country, we saw a leader who deleted this many, 33,000 of their own personal emails outside of the government, a thousand with the head of
4:26 pm
centcom equivalent, we would be outraged, we would be saying this is corruption, this is cover-up. let alone whether or not it's a legal issue. it's a public corruption issue. melissa: why would she delete those emails? as you sit and think about it, i mean i thought before maybe she is trying to cover up the tracks from the foundation, and from, you know, pay for play, in that arena. could it be that? i don't know, what is your best guess -- >> i mean a thousand, a thousand emails is bulk, right? it's a lot. in my estimation she is just absolutely doing a fire-sale basically. she is deleting anything that had to do with general petraeus, because she probably remembers in her conversation with him that they had a whole bunch of different, you know, issues that they discussed that shouldn't go out there. whether it is classified information or she's asking some basic questions. or she is just doing downright
4:27 pm
political work, to say, hey, are you going to be with me? can i get some advice on this? all of these types of issues would not be criminal activities but they would be embarrassing. they would be using government servers for political purposes. so i am not so sure what the issue is, other than it's embarrassing. melissa: yeah. >> and that it's absolutely morally wrong from a government transparency issue. i mean the state department covering up this as well, i worked there for eight years. whoever becomes president, they're going to need to appoint a secretary of state that will need to clean house. my fear is, is that hillary clinton is going to appoint someone as secretary of state that will continue hiding what she hid and we'll never get to the bottom of this. melissa: yeah. ric grenell, thank you for your thoughts today, appreciate it. david? david: one driver got a huge traffic ticket even donald trump couldn't get him out of. we'll explain. melissa: plus bernie sanders
4:28 pm
campaigning with hillary clinton moments ago, and once again, free college, giving more stuff away. can the senator's push help clinton gain more supporters, especially millenials? the pursuit of healthier.
4:29 pm
it begins from the second we're born. because, healthier doesn't happen all by itself. it needs to be earned every day. using wellness to keep away illness. and believing a single life can be made better by millions of others. as a health services and innovation company optum powers modern healthcare by connecting every part of it. so while the world keeps searching for healthier we're here to make healthier happen.
4:30 pm
4:31 pm
david: campaigning with bernie. hillary clinton holding a rally with senator sanders just moments ago, pitching a joint plan to make college more affordable if not free. fox news's jennifer griffin is in durham, new hampshire, with the very latest. hi, jennifer.
4:32 pm
reporter: hi, david. what's notable this is only second time that hillary clinton has appeared with bernie sanders since he endorsed her in july. he has not really been out on the campaign trail for her, but she needs him right now and that is why they are campaigning here at the university of new hampshire. there is a real push on college campuses to try and get some excitement among millenials. polls are showing there is a big drop-off from last month. the latest "quinnepiac poll," showing hillary clinton had 24-point gap shrunk this terms of five points vis-a-vis her opponent, trump interest. what did she do today? she came to a university campus and began talking about something we hadn't heard about recently, which is an idea that bernie sanders started on the campaign trail with. which is that college would be free at public colleges and universities for any family earning less $125,000 a year.
4:33 pm
bernie sanders said that would affect 83% of american families. secretary clinton also promised there would be loan forgiveness of those students who went into national, national service or any sort of public service. they didn't define exactly what that meant. these are big promises and very expensive promises. not exactly clear from the remarks today how they would pay for this kind of program but bernie sanders said that if we don't pay for this now, we'll pay for later. meaning that the wealth gap between students coming out of college with $100,000 in student debt, that is a drain on the economy. so i believe that we'll hear more about this in coming days. but again, a real push on college campuses to try and get the enthusiasm up among students and millenials they hope will come out to vote. that is the group that really pushed president obama over the edge when he ran in 2008 and 2012, david. david: but it is interesting.
4:34 pm
the gap has really shrunk. thanks very much, jennifer. appreciate it. melissa? melissa: big blow to president obama. both the house and senate voting to overturn the president's veto of the 9/11 lawsuit bill allowing families of the september 11 victims to sue the saudi arabian government. this marks the first time congress has overridden a veto during the obama administration. here now is republican congressman trent franks of arizona. thanks so much for joining us. why do you think this is so important? >> well, i think it is important that when an act of terrorism occurs on american soil, against american individuals, that they should have access to their own courts. you now i understand all kinds of conflicts and dealing with foreign immunity and there are a lot of things this bill does do and some things it doesn't do. but the important thing is, that it recognizes individual americans rights to access their courts when an active international terrorism is
4:35 pm
perpetrated against them on their own country's soil. melissa: okay. i was reading before i came out here that this bill is relatively disingenuous because of a clause that chuck schumer added in, says that the state department and justice could put a pause on any lawsuit indefinitely. all they have to do is say we are in the process of negotiating with the saudi government. how do you respond to that? >> well there are some abilities for the president or the state department if there is a genuine national security concern to pause this. at least it is not permanent. we've been able to adjust the provision in the law that allows over period of time for citizens to continue to try. and for the president to veto the bill, it is just sort of par for the course for this administration. they always seem to be more concerned about the sensibilities of other nations more than they are about the fundamental rights of american citizens.
4:36 pm
and this is about when an american citizen is injured or have their family members killed or as an act of terrorism on their own soil, and that in this case the president's veto would have closed the door to them being able to have access to their own courts. melissa: josh earnest said a short time ago, and i'm paraphrasing, basically this is the dumbest thing that congress has ever done because it jeopardizes, jeopardizes relations with saudi arabia and other governments. it jeopardizes the credibility of the united states to go out and say we'll let our citizens go ahead and sue another government, basically was a terrible move. >> well i understand some of the thinking behind that but the truth is that the way the bill is written there is such a clear tunnel and a specificity there that i don't think what he is saying is true at all. ultimately there were some sincere members of the house that were very hawkish.
4:37 pm
i would have to say it is almost to be more hawkish than i am that were concerned there would be some sort of retaliation. the fact is they can do that now. if they write the bill saksly as we have, because it doesn't include acts of war. we think the president's veto was him choosing the sensibilities of foreign nations and subordinating thosof the american citizens. melissa: congressman franks, thank you so much. appreciate your time. >> thank you. melissa: david. david: meanwhile the debate crime and race relation has become a very potent campaign issue. now the united nations wants in on the debate. saying police shootings of unarmed of black men are quote, reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching. the group goes on to recommend that the u.s. should pay reparations for history of slavery and current-day racism.
4:38 pm
siriusxm patriot radio host and fox news contributor joins me now. lynches, my god. they essentially taken "black lives matter" rhetoric which is incorrect. >> right. david: i'm looking at fbi stats here. this was put out by "the washington post" showing year after year the number of black and black and his nick people killed by police has not increased at all. this is not a epidemic to quote "black lives matter." the u.n. blocked that? >> we see "black lives matter" protest in england and france. this is leftist, anti-american, anti-capitalist movement taking advantage of something that started in figurer gone in 2014 and built it into a movement largely funded by operations or organizations by the way, fund by george soros. david: this could actually affect -- more than a u.n. pronouncement. they make a lot of these useless pronouncements this could affect foreign policy towards the
4:39 pm
united states. >> it could possibly, david, and here is why i doubt that. this group or organization have little or no power. they have recommendations. george bush pulled out of it during his years in the white house. it has no effect. david: let me move on to the u.s. elections because we don't have much time. one thing having effect on this rhetoric, rhetoric from "black lives matter," this is becoming a form of lynching what happens with cops in the united states, in various cities across the country people have the police force has moved back because they're afraid of getting arrested. they're afraid of all kind of things happening. and as result we sieve increase in violent crime. we had a 10.8% increase in the murder rate in the year 2015. i would say largely because of a pullback in policing in the united states. so it is affecting what we do here in the united states. >> oh absolutely it is. when you look at the reduction of use of stop, question and frisk, which is constitutional, contrary to what was said in the
4:40 pm
presidential debate, it is the law of the land, when you pull -- david: law of certain states. certain states rejected it. >> 1968, terry versus ohio. terry stops are still constitutional. judge simon's ruling it was unconstitutional as applied which doesn't change the original -- david: i get that but point is certain districts put back in using it like new york city for example. >> right. david: i would argue as a result of that, we've seen violent crime stats go in the wrong direction. >> absolutely. here is where it gets worse. there is lagging indicator. include in misdemeanor crimes, increase in minor felonies. those become larger crimes as people advance in the criminal career. what happens we'll see this over time. it won't end because suddenly murders go down for any reason. the lagging incator is the growth of criminal behavior. david: 10.8% increase we know about right you now. if that's a lag, god knows what will happen in 2016. >> i can tell you right now quickly in new york, having run an investigation into
4:41 pm
reclassification of crimes through my organization and looking at come stat reports at precinct level, you're seeing a rise, significantly in some precincts. david: david webb, good to see you my friend. melissa? melissa: breaking news. south carolina governor nikki haley is on her way to townville, south carolina, after a shooting at an elementary school. two teachers, two students, pardon me, and a teacher have been injured. according to the reports the injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. a suspect who is a teenager is in custody according to anderson county sheriff's department. wow. david? david: handing out immune deals like candy. the head of the fbi grilled on capitol hill today as lawmakers demand answers about the investigation into hillary clinton's emails. was the agency's defense good enough? we're going to be asking representative bob goodlatte. he is the chairman of the judiciary committee. he had some strong words for the fbi director. he will be here in a moment.
4:42 pm
>> call us wrong, but don't call us weasels. we are not weasels. we are honest people. we did this in that way, whether you disagree or agree with the result, this is done the way you would want it to be done. you're not a cook, if you don't cook. you're not a firefighter, if you don't fight fires. or a coach, if you don't coach. and you can't be our leader, if you don't lead. our next president needs to take action osocialecurity, or future generations could lose up to $10,000 a year. we're working hard, what about you? hey candidates, do your jobs. keep social security strong.
4:43 pm
4:44 pm
4:45 pm
>> we have congress and american people are troubled how such gross negligence is not punished and why there seems to be a different standard for the politically well-connected, particularly if your name is clinton. david: that is a pretty good question. house republicans demanding answers. members of the house judiciary committee grilling fbi director james comey over the decision to grant a number of hillary clinton's former aides immunity during the investigation of the democratic nominee's private email server. here republican congressman, bob goodlatte, chairman of the house judiciary committee, who you heard questioning mr. comey. congressman, the big question is whywhy were all these people,
4:46 pm
people like bryan pagliano, the guy who set up the server, why were they granted the broad immunity? >> it gives great rife to suspicion they were given immunity so they couldn't be t have the incentive to testify which is the opposite of the reason you usually grant immunity. david: right. >> so it is very concerning to us that people who could have been required to testify, other reasons could have been prosecuted, were all granted immunity. then at end of the day they say we'll not prosecute secretary clinton either. and i have got to tell you that it just began to smell even more than it did before. you recall how this came down. you have a year-long investigation and then you have suddenly the attorney general meeting on the tarmac with former president bill clinton. david: yeah. >> a few days later she says oops, i shouldn't have done that.
4:47 pm
because i've done that i will recuse myself from consideration. david: it just looked awful. >> fbi director stepping in saying i will take responsibility. david: if we get back to this immunity thing because what happened, just to remind folks, is that cheryl mills, the benghazi committee got formed. they were looking into what happened to all of emails that hillary clinton was send about benghazi when she was secretary of state. cheryl mills contacted bryan pagliano, the guy that set up the server to try to wipe her server clean after the committee was already in session. why immunize both mills and pagliano when they may have been guilty of obstruction of justice? >> that's correct. and then why would cheryl mills, a top advisor, chief former, chief of staff to secretary clinton and an attorney, be admitted into the room when the fbi interviewed secretary clinton, when she is a witness who has been given immunity,
4:48 pm
gets to sit there and listen to, maybe even influence the testimony of secretary clinton. david: we're asking all the questions means we have not gotten the answers we wanted from the fbi director. and in fact one big question that darrell issa, your colleague, put to the fbi director. and why this broad immunity. director comey didn't answer truthfully or full knowledge. let ace listen. >> i don't think anybody was given transactional immunity. >> oh really? you gave immunity from destruction for both attorneys, not just turning documents over, specifically destruction. david: so, comey's answer was, either ignorant of what really happened. the the transactional immunity which is broader immunity or he was misleading congress. >> during the hearing, we called the justice department having them read the letter to cheryl mills and some of the other potential witnesses that were
4:49 pm
granted immunity to our staff and we set the record straight at the end of the hearing. we never got a straight response from director comey as to why he did that nor did we get a direct response from the director regarding the charges -- david: i'm sorry to cut you off. we have breaking news. congressman goodlatte, thank you very much. melissa. melissa: let's go to donald trump right now. he is holding a rally in iowa. let's listen in. >> believe me, that's what happened. in her campaign for president hillary clinton has received $100 million in contributions from wall street, and the hedge funds. she received $4.1 million? speaking fees from financial firms. i'd like to he see what she said. where are the papers? bernie was asking for the papers but bernie gave up. the same groups paying bill and hillary for their speeches were lobbying the federal government. 22 groups paying bill clinton
4:50 pm
for speeches lobbied the state department while hillary was secretary of state. and don't forget that clinton contributors were appointed to advisory boards by the secretary clinton for all of favors. and access was granted. and guess what? they wrote checks. the favors were granted and all of these people, or at least a lot of them, wrote checks. she even gave up 20% of uranium. you know what happens with uranium, don't you? [shouting] who controls that 20%? russia. russia. russia. she disgraced the office of secretary of state by putting it you up for sale. and if she ever got the chance, she would put the oval office up for sale too and nobody has any doubt about it. and we can't let that happen.
4:51 pm
that's why you have to go out and on november 8th, and early voting in iowa starts tomorrow. get out. don't take a chance. [cheering] don't take a chance. do not take a chance. she deleted and bleached 33,000 emails. nobody ever heard of the bleaching. nobody ever heard of it. and they don't use it. it is very expensive process. people don't use it. but she used it, and nobody understands how she can get a congressional subpoena. she gets the subpoena. this didn't happen before the subpoena. she gets the subpoena. and she then goes out and she deletes 33,000 emails. you know if somebody sues you, an they want your records and you do that, as a private
4:52 pm
citizen, it's, you know where you go. she get as congressional subpoena and i'm so disappointed with the people in washington for allowing her to get away with this. i'm so disappointed. and that means on both sides, by the way. i am so disappointed. [applause] when they say there is nothing they can do. there is nothing they can do. she gets rid of 13 phones. how many people have gotten rid of 13 phones? and how many people, one hand. what business are you in? [laughter] what is your business? i think he was just a wise guy. that's all. but she destroyed a number of them with a hammer. how many people have he destroyed an iphone or a phone with a hammer? anybody in the room? couple of hand go up. i don't know if they're kidding.
4:53 pm
i think they're kidding but who knows. her staffers taking the fifth amendment, how about that? her ringleaders getting immunity. she has people taking the fifth amendment. four people plus the guy who illegally did the server. he put in the illegal server. so there are five people taking the fifth amendment. like you see on the mob, right? you see the mob takes the fifth. if you are innocent, why are you taking the fifth amendment? [shouting] and then they read a whole list of charges. she is guilty on everyone of them. and then what do they say? but, that's okay. and yet other people that have done 2% of what she did, their lives have been destroyed. you tell me, you tell me what is it going on with our country what is going on with our government? foreign enemies, with easy access to hack your server.
4:54 pm
lies to cop guess under oath. about turning over her work-related emails. which are largely destroyed. although i have a feeling they can get emails. you know i always heard you really can't destroy e-mails. i don't think they tried to hard to get them, do you? does anybody think -- i don't think they tried too hard. the clintons have perfected the politics of profit, but more importantly, when you look at what's happening i think it has more to do with other things. large corporations. who support terrible trade deals. and offshore jobs. and they're donating to the clintons. when you look at some of the deals that we all have to suffer with, and you look at the deals that are made, a lot of those deals, it is not because the politicians are so you stupid. in some cases they are, seriously, but not all. probably in most they aren't.
4:55 pm
friend of mind said to me how is it possible that such and such a deal was made? then you look who is making contributions to the campaign and you see why the deal is made. okay? it is very sad when you look at that. what does it mean? it means our jobs are fleeing our country. our companies that employ the people are leaving for mexico and other places. china can devalue their currency and do whatever they want. the wall street investors rigged regulations against the middle class, they're donating to hillary clinton. they're certainly not donating to me. the wealthy donors who want to shut down american energy, they're donating to hillary clinton. and by the way, ethanol, we like ethanol, right? [applause] we like ethanol. the special interests who want open borders are donating to hillary clinton. you have your problems here with open borders. and i have been hearing a lot
4:56 pm
about open borders even here. you don't think of -- david: donald trump going back playing hardball, specifically targeting hillary clinton's role as secretary of state, suggesting that there was a pay for play deal going on with the clinton foundation. also of course talking about her emails and all new information that has come out about that. a lot tougher than he has been past couple days. >> that's right. he is along for the ride but the man behind "the art of the deal" can't get you out of this ticket. ♪ ♪ approaching medicare eligibility? you may think you can put off checking out your medicare options until you're sixty-five,
